I met Tatjana through my boyfriend. She comes from Latvia and has been living in Graz for a couple of months. Tatjiana works in IT and has a passion for travelling and board games.
Let’s find out what she said about living in Graz.
How did you come to Graz?
I came to Graz for my boyfriend. He had a job offer here and we both moved here. We were living in Edinburgh previously.
How long have you been in Graz?
I’ve been in Graz since October, so 8-9 months so far.
What do you like about Graz?
I like that it’s small enough to bike around and big enough to have something to do.
I also like that it’s quite sunny and warm. It’s really nice.
What don’t you like about Graz?
I don’t know yet. My problem is that I haven’t learned German yet. So everything is confusing sometimes. 😉
Did you have any challenges moving here?
Besides the language, it went quite well. It was quite easy to find an apartment here compared to the other cities.
Everything went quite well. I had some problems at the Finanzamt because I had to register some stuff and they don’t speak English. Otherwise it went pretty smooth.
I like that things are well organised and quite free at the same time.
What is your favourite place in Graz?
I don’t know. I quite like Schloßberg. It’s a nice place to be, especially when there’s nice weather.
